Community Engagement in Australia
We're here to serve Australia
We're serious about playing a key role in the communities around our key operations by supporting STEM education, enriching communities, and supporting charitable causes locally and nationally. Our teams here in Australia carry out an extensive program of outreach across the country.
Australian War Memorial
Leidos first partnered with the Australian War Memorial in 2017 on a multi-year project to deliver ‘On Closer Inspection’, a series of immersive 360-degree experiences. Through the use of 360-degree video and virtual reality technology visitors can explore and interact with some of the Memorial's historic large technology objects inside and out.
Leidos has now committed to further multi-year support to enhance digital access to the Memorial’s National Collection materials, helping to educate the public on the Australian experience of war. In particular, Leidos will fund development of web transcription platforms which will facilitate the review and correction of software-generated transcriptions of printed records, journals and diaries, audio and video recordings, and photograph tags. As well as providing a platform and opportunity for the public to actively support the work of the Memorial, the outcome will aid improved accessibility to the digital collections – online, anywhere, anytime.

Leidos has been a proud partner of Bravery Trust since 2017. Bravery Trust provides urgent financial support and financial counselling to current and former members of the Australian Defence Force and their families. It provides a financial safety net to those who have suffered an injury or illness as a result of their service and who are experiencing hardship.
Leidos is a Foundation Partner of Bravery Trek, an annual fundraising event where participants commit to walk, swim, cycle or wheelchair the equivalent distance of an iconic military related route or significant military achievement, and fundraise to support the important work of Bravery Trust.
